Follow the spiderAnansi on his quest to complete a challenge from the Sky God in order to take ownership of the world’s stories.
Long ago, all stories belonged to Nyame, the all-seeing Sky God. But one creature, Anansi, was determined to bring the stories down to Earth. Anansi went to Nyame and requested to take ownership of the world’s stories. The Sky God told Anansi that he could have all the stories he wished — but only if he could complete an impossible task. EmilyZobelMarshall shares the cunning spider's journey.
